Chadwick Boseman knows a thing or two about playing iconic figures, thanks to his star making performance as Jackie Robinson in 42. Playing the Dodgers legend may have been a monumental challenge, but climbing up that hill isn’t over for Boseman. He plays James Brown, aka the Godfather of Soul, in Get On Up, a [...]

It’s the beginning of the end for The Hunger Games – literally – as Mockingjay Part 1 will be released this November. The first half of the two-part finale is one of the year’s most highly anticipated films and, like the book, a much darker and bigger story than the previous episodes.

While Mitch is a rambunctious, get up and go type of guy, Colin is decidedly way more laid back. Their disparate personalities may lead to a few verbal dust-ups here and there, but [...]

Just…disappeared. No bodies…no fuss, no muss. Set three years after the ‘event’, [...]
Premiering next month on FX, THE STRAIN is a vampire horror series based on the novels written by GUILLERMO DEL TORO and CHUCK HOGAN.

Headed to VOD on June 27 and set for a July 25 theatrical release, Beneath is an unnerving and claustrophobic thriller directed by Ben Ketai.
